MEET  THE  BANDITAS

Melbourne Bandita Bureau: artist-researcher and wanna-be filmmaker. Mildly obsessive about John Cassavetes and Monica Vitti.  Leanora is currently doing her PhD at the Victorian College of the Arts where she is reimagining, through her own film photography and community archives, the experience of living in the Australian country town Rainbow. She is currently collaborating with artist Dianne Dickson to create an artists' residency in Rainbow, and is a member of Artists Film Workshop in Melbourne.
